This is a decent white touch up paint.

If you’re looking for an alternative to the Tesla touch up paint for white cars, (I have a 2018 build) I believe this is a closer match than the Tesla paint kit.
It’s close enough, that I can’t see the difference. Cheaper also. :)
I just spray a bit on a cloth, and dab it on the chip. Not a professional kit, but it will hide your chips really well, colour wise.

I found it in Canadian Tire, so I’m not sure if you Americans have access to this or not.

OP did you ever look at one of the dr colorchip kits to see if they have a match for tesla white? I used those kits for paint chip repair for the leased BMWs I had, which had metallic blue paint, or metallic black paint, or Metallic grey paint, and always found them to be even better than the BMW paint repair kits.

Definitely would cost more than a can of rust check paint from a hardware store, but the kits also have squeegees and applicators, etc.

I didn’t look at any of those kits. I have the Tesla kit only.
I’m sure those are fine also, and the applicators would make it look better also.

Just another option, that matches the colour well.

you have any pictures of the finished product with this paint?

Doesn’t look like it’s in the US. Wonder if rust check is Canada version of rust oleum

I got the Dr. Colorchip and they make some apology about the match due to the complex nature of the white. I have had very good results with their products on metal (BMW, VW) but it is terrible on the bumper of my Tesla and wasn't much better on the bumper of the VW (both plastic).

My car isnt white (its blue) but this is good feedback. Thanks for sharing. Lots of people swear by dr colorchip, so thats a bit disappointing but its good to hear real world feedback.
